My friends and I listen to the radio every morning on our commute to work.
- Most of the time we listen to the sports channel.
They give all the highlights from the games and talk about all of the latest news in sports. Last week we were listening to the sports station and they had a radio contest for tickets to a Portland Trail Blazers game. Jack started calling as soon as he heard the special ring for callers to contact the station. He called several times and was not successful. The next day, we listened to the radio at the same time, hoping they would give away another set of Portland Trail Blazers tickets. Sure enough, the radio station offered two additional tickets to the Portland Trail Blazers game on Thursday night. Jack won the tickets this time and we picked them up from the radio station later that afternoon. The radio station is on the north side of town. It is located right next door to a recreational and medical marijuana dispensary. Most of the Portland marijuana dispensaries are located outside of town. I’m not sure if the city has an ordinance or high taxes, but it’s clear that the dispensary owners don’t prefer to be in the middle of the city. We went to the game together on Thursday and it was a really close game. In the third quarter it was 92 to 96, but the game had to end early due to a fight in the stands. They sent everyone home and ended the game with the final score being tied at 100 points apiece. It was absolutely the worst thing that I have ever seen. We didn’t get to see the rest of the game and some idiot ruined the experience for all of us.
